The PMWG would like to land various bits of cpuidle functionality for
member platforms for the March release.

Rob will provide you with a pull request next week that contains:
- his work on cpuidle core consolidation
- his work adding cpuidle support for i.MX5/6
- Daniel's work on adding cpuidle support for ST-E u8500
- Amit D's work on add support for common save and restore code to the
Samsung exynos platform
- Mike's tracking branch containing patches adding support for SMP
cpuidle for OMAP

The kernel config options will be documented in the wiki[1] and will
be conveyed in email separately.
